Rocking chairs for nursery have been necessities for ages as parents and babies find the back and forth motion soothing and sleep inducing. The rocking chairs of today, as well as the current gliders for nursery, have taken this basic idea and expanded on it.
Comfortable and stylish places to cuddle, feed and read to a child are rocking chairs for nursery. They also feature plenty of padding and come with matching ottomans for propping up the feet. They are very different from the old-school wooden rockers.
On the other hand, gliders for nursery come in a variety of styles, from traditional to sleek to modern. Some modern rockers are barely recognizable as rocking chairs, with their beautiful styling and resembling a cushy living room chair placed on top of wooden rockers. Some can even be converted to a regular chair if desired.
It is in they way they move that the innovation in gliders for nursery lie. Instead of rocking, they slide back and forth on a fixed track. Almost no effort is required in this smooth-as-silk gliding motion. This effortlessness is very much appreciated during the feeding and soothing sessions during the very early mornings.
Because they sit flat on the floor instead of on rounded rockers, gliders for nursery are less likely to pinch the toes of either the parents or the child. This feature of gliders give them a distinct advantage over rocking chairs for nursery.
Both rocking chairs for nursery and gliders for nursery are a bit expensive. However, their value for money comes from the fact that they can come in handy for years. Parents feel they spend all of their time in their rocker or glider in the early days of the newborn. They may find themselves still spending time in these rockers or gliders five to six years hence reading bedtime stories to their child.
